Any home/waterbirth pregnant mom group?

Postby MissyLyn » Mon Mar 05, 2012 11:01 am

I'm not pregnant but was hoping to find a group of pregnant moms that plan on Home/water birthing. Anything like that around?
Thanks


ETA Found out we are expecting #7 :)

I am also planning on doing a home birth and will have a birthing tub. Congrats! This is my first so I don't have any prior experience, but I'm sure we can discuss any worries or questions that come up!

Hi, Yay. I thought I was the only one planning a homebirth. I really want this to happen. This is my 7th & I'm tired of hospitals & there staff. I have had some great nurses but also some very mean nurses. Also had hospital issues like no rooms, construction & room mates :( I just don't want to deal with that anymore.

Good for you! I was born at home as were all of my siblings. My mom was a midwife's assistant so I have also gotten to watch a few births aside from my 4 siblings' births. my little sister just had a home birth last year and I am excited to finally get my chance to experience it. I absolutely LOVE my midwife and have done a hypnobirthing class to prepare.
I really hope you get to have the birth that you want this time! If you haven't read it already, I highly recommend Ina Mays Guide to Childbirth by Ina May Gaskin. It is a wonderful book and very encouraging for home births!

Me! I am planning a home/water birth! This is my very first pregnancy ever so everything is all new and exciting for me. Just interviewed our first midwives yesterday. I am planning concurrent care with Kaiser HMO for the medical back up and all the u/s and tests. So when I scheduled my first prenatal appointment at Kaiser and told them I am planning on a homebirth, they were supportive, so that is encouraging.

I'd love to start a homebirth group!

Miss_Jilly - congrats on your pg! You sound like you are very on top of your research! Do you think you will have a tub at home? My midwife gave me that option and I am very excited about trying it. I have heard such wonderful things about the relaxation a tub can provide. How have you been feeling? Any ms yet?
